COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our latest addition to our year-round lineup. For you hop heads out there, you have to try this! This American style IPA made with rye grain tops the charts at over 85 IBU (that’s a lot of bitter!). It’s starts with floral hop notes a big malty body hinting at the underlying rye grain and finishes with a nice clean bitterness.

Pours lightly hazy, light orange with a medium sized white head that leaves some lace. Smells earthy and citrusy with some grain. Pretty nice. Tastes lightly bitter and citrusy, lots of flavor with a nice rye, grain backbone. Pretty good. Medium body, good carbonation.

ChazMania (658) - Pasadena, California, USA - OCT 29, 2010
Bomber poured into pint glass. I love supporting my local breweries, I need to get to this place to check it out, just been trying bombers here and there. This is a nicely floral aroma IPA, dark orange, head faded quickly. Taste is well balanced, a tad bitter and has a nice texture on the finish. I nice respectable IPA.

dankman (253) - Somewhere in, Ohio, USA - OCT 2, 2010
Pours copper with a smallish head, no lacing. Pine and citrus on the nose, far from overwhelming. Bitter hops with a bit of carmely malt on the tongue. Finishes bitter, pretty clean.

JohnnyJ (4733) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 27, 2010
22 oz bottle. Clear reddish gold pour, sticky off-white head. Crisp hops, foral, citrus, rye, and semi sweet grain. Nice refeshing IPA. I have no problems with it, but not spectacular.

StefanSD (2218) - Lakeside, California, USA - SEP 26, 2010
650 ml bottle from holiday cellar. Pours a hazy copper color with a medium white head that has fair retention. The aroma is faint and indistinct with mildly spicy malts and some cooked veggies. The taste is hops forward with nutty-spicy biter hops, caramel malts, biscuit and the cooked vegetables alluded to in the nose. The palate was uneven starting thin and then building to a malty conclusion. Finishes short, dry and clean. Overall: An interesting brew.

Fatalstrike (130) - Cerritos, California, USA - SEP 19, 2010
UPDATED: OCT 4, 2011 22 oz. Bomber Aroma has a nice hoppiness, but nothing overpowering. the malt is there but not standing out. Pours a nice orange with a white foam head that makes a short appearance before retreating to the edge of the glass. Taste - up front caramel sweetness that ends with a nice hop crispness. This isn’t the kind of IPA that tastes like a pine cone, leans more to an american interpretation of a british IPA with some sweet fruit notes. The rye is present but does not dominate this beer. Palate - standard IPA mouthfeel. Overall - A nice IPA to drink when you’re not in the mood for a hop monster.

Bottle from joetheyounger... Bomber, smells good and hoppy. Piney... Close to a golden orange with a red tint... Taste is a decent dry ipa... Light pine taste, well balanced. Not picking up any rye notes....Texture is light. Decent brew. Not bad, or great.

Dogbrick (8983) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 23, 2010
UPDATED: SEP 4, 2010 On draught at Heroes in Fullerton. The beer is a clear dark orange color with a medium off-white head that recedes steadily. Stringy lacing on the glass. Floral hops and grain in the nose. Medium body with a moderately bitter hops character that has floral and pine notes. Bready malt in the background. The finish is hoppy with a rye and grain aftertaste. Decent brew overall.
